Arithmetic doesn’t seem to be a strong point at Design Bridge. According to managing director David Rivett rumours about the group being for sale are down to design industry gossip, and people have ‘put two and two together and come up with 56’.
His colleague Mike Hawkins, the group’s finance director, has an entirely different view. ‘They’ve put two and two together and come up with five,’ he says.
Perhaps finance directors are simply more realistic.
